Gabe, Jen and Aisha | calgary maternity portraits

I met up with Jen and Gabe last week for maternity pictures before they meet their new little one on Friday.  Gabe is the amazing photographer of perspectiveye.   Doing portraits of his family was a little bit stressful for me.  After all, not only is his work amazing but I’m so grateful for everything he has done for myself, my business and my skills as a photographer.  I know I would not be where I am without he and Jen in my life.

Thankfully, I didn’t need to be stressed.   Wait, I should rephrase that.  I needed to be stressed before they arrived and I was scoping out the place for areas to shoot.  I screamed and ran for my life when two overly large birds flew out from behind a fence I walked around.  Partridges?  Grouse?  Do we have those here?  After that, I threw a board in to the barn figuring if there were more birds inside they would fly out.  I threw it, nothing happened.  I wandered in, totally at ease and confident that my scare tactics had worked.  Nope.  Again, I found myself screaming and ducking so I didn’t get hit in the head by a bird.  I must have looked ridiculous.  I’m not even really a fraidy cat!  I’ve been on farms all of my life.  I’m tough, or so I thought.  Anyway, Gabe and Jen were wonderful and took it easy on me.  Probably because they saw in my face when they arrived that I had already been traumatized.  I don’t know.  🙂

Aisha is such a cutie and had so much fun hanging out with her Mom and Dad and being tossed in the air while we waited and hoped for the sun to peek out (it didn’t).  She is a little daredevil and almost gave me a heart attack.  🙂  It is hard to imagine little Aisha as a big sister but she will be wonderful I’m sure.
